Jack KENESKY, Craftsman: 1919-2005
For decades, his hand-made, kapok-and-deer-hair leather goalie pads protected legions of National Hockey League net minders. Now, even the workshop above the store his father started in Hamilton has disappeared
By Scott RADLEY, Canadian Press; with files from Globe and Mail archives, Thursday, March 3, 2005 - Page S7
Hamilton, Ontario -- Jack KENESKY always was better with leather than he was with people. If only because he'd had far more experience with the former than the latter.
"His is a simple story," says Pete RICHARDS, who now owns Kenesky Sports, the store that Jack's family made famous with its hand-made hockey equipment. "There's no bells or whistles to it."
Eighty-five years ago, Jack -- his real name was John, but nobody ever called him that -- was born just up the street from the store that his father Emil (Pops) KENESKY had opened in Hamilton years before at the corner of Barton and Wellington Streets.
The place sold bikes to make ends meet, but it was the hand-made goalie equipment created in the upstairs workshop that made the family name famous. By the time he was 10, Jack had dropped out of school and taken his place in the business. His three brothers all gone now -- worked as salesmen on the floor. His job was to learn from his father the craft of turning leather and deer hair into world-class pads. Then to help pump out as many as 300 pairs a year.
It was gruelling work. But it had its rewards. For years, every goalie in the National Hockey League wore the family's gear. Jack's handiwork protected the legs of Turk Broda, Tony Esposito, Ed Giacomin, Ken Dryden, Gerry Cheevers, Jacques Plante, Glenn Hall, Rogie Vachon, Terry Sawchuk, Gump Worsley, Harry Lumley, Johnny Bower and, until he retired in late 1999, even Ron Hextall.
"They did everybody," Mr. RICHARDS says.
Goalie pads were invented in 1927 by Pops KENESKY, who had years before immigrated to Canada from a town on the German-Polish border. He had been working as a harness maker in Hamilton when a friend asked him to fix a bicycle. Eventually, with a house full of bicycles, Pops bought the shop on Barton Street East and started repairing and making sports equipment until 1975, the year he died.
The pads had emerged in response to a request by Jake FORBES, a goaltender for the Hamilton Tigers in what was the National Hockey League in 1924, asked for something better than the cricket pads he had been using. The result was an interesting combination of California creamed horse-hide, cotton sheeting, kapok and deer hair, which possessed almost mythical qualities of shock absorption.
Former National Hockey League goalie Brian Hayward, now working as a sports broadcaster in the United States, believed in KENESKY pads and preferred them over newfangled foam. "I prefer deer hair because I like to play the angles," he once said. "I like to play the puck in front of me and move the rebound with my stick. When the puck hits my pads, it just sits on the ice in front of me. There are longer rebounds off foam."
KENESKY pads lasted longer, too -- at least three years of hard National Hockey League use as opposed to one year for synthetic. Later, KENESKY pads often found extra years of life as hand-me-downs in local leagues.
At one time, the store made the pads of the entire National Hockey League when it was composed of only six teams. Superstitious goalies often had special requests, such as wanting a rabbit's foot sewn inside. In 1989, a pair of custom-made, leather KENESKY pads took one person 10 days to make and cost about $1,200.
Early one morning some time in the mid-'60s, Jack KENESKY nearly stepped on Terry Sawchuk, who was sitting on the steps of the store, pads in hand, waiting for him to sew up a tear. The Maple Leaf and future hall of famer had taken a cab from Toronto to get the kind of service he could only find from the guy who'd made the gear in the first place.
Service wasn't always that quick, though. The pads were in such demand that it was impossible to build up stock. Each pair had to be ordered, sometimes as far as a year in advance.
Even then, it was usually only the pros who could get them and they were willing to be patient, because owning a pair of KENESKYs meant you'd made it as a goalie. And when your turn finally came, it was an occasion. After measuring the client from ankle to knee, Mr. KENESKY would go up to his workshop on the second floor of the store and cut pieces of leather from a hide he'd brought to the shop directly from the tanner.
Then, over the next two days or so -- alternately working and looking out the window onto the street, and always muttering under his breath -- he'd use his experience, the same oft-repaired hole-punch he'd wielded for years, some kapok, a swath of cotton sheeting and several pounds of deer hair to turn the pieces of leather into a perfect pair of pads.
"When you saw a brand-new pair come off the table, you'd look at it and say, 'Man, I don't want to wear them. They're beautiful,' Mr. RICHARDS said. "The KENESKYs were just proud after every piece of work."
But everyone who was anyone in the world of goaltending got over their reluctance and did wear them. Until the mid-'70s, at least. Sensing an opportunity to make some money, a number of competitors jumped into the market and grabbed a share. There was still business to be had, but it slowed, especially by the time Pops KENESKY died in 1974. On his own and getting older, Jack KENESKY produced only a couple of pairs a week. Times were changing and the one-room, one-man workshop wasn't able to keep up. The market for leather pads completely collapsed at the start of the 1990s. With lighter, more water-resistant materials available, goalies were leaving the past behind. Jack and his pads were suddenly dinosaurs in the high-tech world.
So, 12 years ago he sewed his final pair. At the time, nobody thought anything of it. There was no moment of silence or sentimental speech to honour the occasion. Mr. KENESKY was pretty much tired of the grind anyway, so he wasn't about to shed a tear about finally being done for good.
Mr. RICHARDS now wishes somebody had paid more attention to where that last pair went. Those pads represented the end of an era in hockey. A simpler time that looks pretty good right about now.
Jack stayed around to help the new owners, mostly since he'd never known anything else. Never married and with no kids, the business was his life. For years after he officially retired, he'd come in a couple of times a day to do pad repairs and keep himself busy.
"He was always here," Mr. RICHARDS said. "He spent 90 per cent of his life up in that room."
But to keep a store operating, it had to change with the times. Not even a landmark is exempt. That's why nothing's left of the workshop now, save for some autographs on the wall from the hockey stars who've popped in to see the place. The spot where Pops and Jack KENESKY churned out Hamilton's most famous contribution to hockey is now a showroom for modern, factory-made goalie equipment. Mr. KENESKY's window is even partly covered.
He moved to a nursing home last year. That put an end to his daily visits to the store. But on Christmas Eve -- just as he had every year -- he made it back, ambled up the stairs he'd climbed so many times before and pulled up a chair by his window. Then, as the company's annual party started, he greeted the folks who came by to say hello and ask how he was. Always skipping the part about the cancer. It was his last time at the store.
There should've been more people at the funeral. After all, a few dozen mourners hardly seem an appropriate sendoff for a local sports legend. A grand ceremony, to honour the last of hockey's first family of goalie pads would've seemed so much better than a Willy Lomanesque sendoff.
What struck Mr. RICHARDS as his friend lay in the casket was the old man's hands. Years after his final pads had been carried out the door by an excited but unknowing client, the hands looked the same as they ever had -- weathered and wrinkly and tough. The hands that had made hockey history over and over again hadn't changed a bit.
John (Jack) KENESKY was born in Hamilton on May 15, 1919. He died of cancer in Hamilton on Feb 15. He was 85. He was predeceased by brothers Edward, Otto and Frank.

RICHARDS, Eric -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Saturday, September 17, 2005, Page M6
Even when gravely ill with kidney disease, Eric Oxford RICHARDS insisted that his life was about more than his health problems. Not even three-hour dialysis treatments or a Christmas in hospital would change that.
"He never wanted his medical situation to define him," said his mother, Glenda RICHARDS.
Mr. RICHARDS's kidney problems dated to the early stages of his life. After being in and out of hospital from the age of 2 to 5, he got a clean bill of health and was off all medications by the age of 10. Nearly a decade later, though, the effects of living with one kidney removed began to show.
Mr. RICHARDS started daily dialysis at 19. He died prematurely, a month before his 33rd birthday, but his mother said he had lived a full life by his death September 8.
"The coroner said he had a really rough life. I had to correct him," Ms. RICHARDS said. "He had a wonderful life."
As a teen, Mr. RICHARDS acted on a television show called The Campbells. Over the years, he also played in several bands and wrote poetry.
He was drawn to the myth of the phoenix, the idea of a new being rising from the ashes of the old. It was a reflection of the hardships he had endured, his mother said, and how they had strengthened him.
"He was, in his own way, very spiritual," Ms. RICHARDS said. "He knew that if he moved on, he was moving on to somewhere else, wherever that is."
Mr. RICHARDS leaves his mother and his two cats, Hamlet and Macbeth. His dog, Buddy, is in the care of his ex-wife, Lori NEWMAN.
